Membership Madness...
Let's Deal With It!

A Regional MASAE Event Offered In 3 Locations
Did you see the Doritos Super Bowl Commercial? Yes, the one with the goat?
Were you curious about what the heck the "fan countdown" was before the halftime show?
Perhaps you skipped the game but have a nagging membership question you want help with? 
Join regional colleagues and help facilitate meaningful conversation that will have an impact.

The phenomenon of crowd sourcing comes to MASAE on March 28th as your regional home for association management development and leadership hosts a virtual education event and town hall meeting about the state of membership.

Register today and have the chance to participate in the discussion live at Georgian Court University Conference Center or virtually at Association Headquarters, Inc. in Mount Laurel and an additional location in Philadelphia (to be determined). Moderators will be on hand at the virtual locations to explore your questions and feedback and bring you into the "crowd."

Our virtual locations will have an on site
facilitator who will be not only ensure your ability to participate in the live stream of the meeting, but will also encourage networking and lead an exploration of ways your local group can support each other once the day's session is over. 

The learning objectives for our 3-hour exploration are:

* To discuss your top membership challenge and engage colleagues in identifying potential solutions
* To explore key findings from the MGI Membership Survey and how they apply to our associations
* To examine and share approaches to key questions including "how many renewal notices should I send?"

Here's where the fun kicks in...

While the learning objectives are set, the details of the agenda will be developed over the next month by utilizing crowd surfing strategies. It's your opportunity to contribute to the content of the session and make sure our time on March 28th meets your needs.

Once you register, you'll be given directions in how to participate in the conversation leading up to the event over MASAE's Twitter channel, Facebook and other virtual communities.
